How does the subdivision process work?

The subdivision process can be challenging by being a mix of statutory requirements, physical construction, interpreting an approval that covers a wide area of specialist knowledge, dealing with a host of different agencies and understanding the mysteries of our land title system, cadastral surveying and Landonline. No wonder the process scares some people off!  Rest assured,  that in dealing with Nicklin Surveying & Resource Management, we take this pain away from you by managing the process. 

Generally, subdivisions involve the following:

  • initial project feasibility and evaluation of the District Plan subdivision rules
  • prepare detailed costing
  • subdivision consent preparation and submission to Council
  • examination of subdivision conditions imposed by Council
  • carry out land transfer survey and prepare a cadastral survey data set (CSD) for lodging with Landonline (i.e the equivalent of a survey plan)
  • carry out any construction work required by subdivision conditions
  • apply to Council for completion certificate when (i) subdivision conditions have been completed and (ii) CSD has been prepared
  • obtain completion certificate and liaise with lawyer for application for new titles
  • new titles issue

We recommend that this process is managed by your surveyor.  Nicklin Surveying & Resource Management's staff are familiar with these processes.
